This tapping station consists of a Hypneumat LS46E Lead Screw Tapper and Centreline 6 spindle tapping head. A 7.5HP SEW motor is driving the (6) 3/4″ straight bore spindles at 600 rpm, roll forming 1/4-20 threads. These components are mounted on a Hypneumat fixed vertical weldment and the entire module will be integrated into a machine manufactured by a local special machinery builder.
Hypneumat recently built this slant bed tapping machine equipped with a LS36E Lead Screw tapper and Vibra-Flight vibratory bowl and part feeding magazine. This machine will tap a 1/4-28 thread with unattended operation. Full electrical and pneumatic controls, quick change floating tool holder and coolant pump were included.
